Hidden in the walls, buried under the ground, and out of sight under the cupboards is an entire section of your plumbing system tasked with carrying used water away from your home. In fact, each fixture in your house has its own individual drainage system that is uniquely designed for the type of use that fixture incurs.
The water that has been used and rinses down the drain in places like the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room of your house often times contains high levels of various types of bacteria that can be quite harmful if they are not properly diverted away from your home.
The best way to support your drainage system and avoid a back-up of bacteria filled water is to keep your drains flowing clearly. When high volumes of things like shaving cream, shampoo, soap, and grease are repeatedly rinsed down the drain the eventual result is a blockage or clog in the line. These products congeal in the pipe and begin to adhere to the inside lining, restriction water flow until it stops completely.
At Call Clint Plumbing of New City our team of highly-skilled and trained plumbers have extensive knowledge of all parts and pieces of your drainage system. We know which techniques will address which symptoms, and can expertly operate every piece of drain cleaning equipment that aid in the process of cleaning your drains:
- Jetting: This is the process of feeding a long hose into your drain, which is equipped with tiny nozzles. Once the hose is in place the machine is turned on and water is sprayed from the nozzles at a very high pressure which breaks up and washes away all build-up and residue that has formed inside of your pipes. This process will effectively clear the blockage as well as return the condition of your pipes to like-new.
- Sectional Cable Machines: These machines are very compact and don’t weigh much so they can be easily packed around. The idea is that several smaller sections of cable are coupled together to form a long hose, typically extended to 15 feet long. This cable is fed into the drainage system and pushes the clog through.
- Continuous Cable Machines: While the operation of these machines is very similar to the sectional cable machines, they are much bulkier and weigh a lot more because the cable is all one piece and can extend to 100 feet or more. Because the technician is not required to fit several small pieces of cable together, these machines are typically much faster to use for clearing a clog.
All of these methods are applicable to various situations and will effectively clear any type of clog you may have. However, the best way to avoid a clog all together is to have regular drain cleaning maintenance performed by a professional. Just like with any other complicated system keeping it regularly maintained is the most effective way to identify and address any issues before they develop into full-blown breakdowns.
